Shall we follow the herd down the cliff?

  • Took up the fight with San Jose Water Company. We have reduced, rejected or suspended 8 water rate increases so far. Which councilmember would create a water app to make protest easier? Just think! Did you hear from any of the other councilmembers on water?
  • Organized hundreds of neighborhood meetings to reduce burglaries — 47% drop, more than any other city. In fact, one of my colleagues did not want me to have the neighborhood meetings. “Rishi, you will drop the price of real estate in Saratoga by talking about crime”
  • Spoke against high density housing at El Paseo Saratoga and Quito Village. My housing policies favor maintaining the quality of life of Saratoga.
  • Early stance against the Mountain Winery development project. I stood all alone on one side, and the rest of the councilmembers the other side. The people won! The project was defeated.
  • Who was communicating during the recent fire threat? Who organized 23 town hall meetings during the pandemic? Who suspended the campaign and called 86,000 seniors during the pandemic offering help with groceries and medications? Proactive communication on all the important issues. I was actually asked by one of my councilmembers to stop the Rishi Kumar newsletter and the constant communication. Really???
